in the red, but that doesn't not tell the whole story because we have triple digits here until ben bernanke spoke. he put a damper on the market, didn't say he'd quit the qe3 #. that's going ahead full bore, but the fact he was not speaking optimistically about the economy and the effects of qe3 on the economy sent a damper on the stocks. a nice way to begin the day with 75 up on the dow, 3.6 on the s&p, and, again, nasdaq is the only one in the red. lauren: sometimes the fed tie doesn't list everything. silver ending at seven month highs. look at that. david: oil, a little of a rise, natural gas, though, we want to focus on natural gas because we have seen that thing grow for the past month or so. it was up 5% today. if you're looking for some play in energy, oil seems a little too hectic for you, go to natural gas. with ce get -- can we get that up there? okay. switch to airlines. lauren: they are seeing a pop today. as you see, there was a report out earlier saying the outlook for the airline industry is improving. that's a good sign. look at that. up arrows across the board. david: ibm,

under president obama because of all the money printing he's done. >> the money printing that ben bernanke has done. >> supporting the treasury and borrowing by obama. what romney understands, david, and president obama is clueless about, there's a big difference between tax credits and tax rates. cutting tax rates gives you incentive to invest in plant and equipment which then allows you to hire people, because you're going to get to keep an extra amount of money on each dollar of profit you make. cutting tax credits does not hurt incentive, because tax credits are temporary and does not encourage investment. >> steve, i want to keep it on the simplification, because that's success i can identify with. i haven't my own taxes in a long time. the reason is, because it's just too complex. i'm not a small business. if i was a small business, i'd have to do devote hundreds of hours of time, a lot of money, to figuring the thing out. >> that's right. the irs has figured out, david, that last year we spent 6.5 billion hours filling out tax forms, the equivalent of 2 1/2 million full-tim
, but fed chairman ben bernanke was decidely defending yesterday. he said the fed needs to continue lowering borrowing rates while the economy continues to grow slowly, and that its bond-buying strategy will continue. he insisted that five years of low interest rate policies have not increased inflation. the fed plans to hold the interest rate near zero until at least mid- 2015. bernanke also indicated that there is not another recession on the horizon, but the economy still isn't strong enough to add jobs faster than the current rate. in greece, union workers are preparing for more 24-hour strikes and walk-outs this month. workers are protesting the government's austerity measures. government officials submitted a draft of the 2013 budget yesterday that calls for a new wave of deep cuts which will save $10 billion next year. workers will protest proposed cuts to salaries, pensions and other benefits. last week, 50,000 people in athens demonstrated against austerity. wages in china are going up - by some estimates, about 17% a year. it is providing china's growing middle class with more mon
.s. federal reserve chief says he'll keep pumping money into the economy. chairman ben bernanke says this round of quantitative easing will continue until he sees an improvement in the job situation. >> we would continue securities purchases and employ other policy tools until the outlook for the job market improves substantially in a context of price stability. >> bernanke said the country's economy is improving but not fast enough to reduce unemployment. fed officials decided last month on another round of quantitative easing. it involves purchases of additional mortgage-backed securities at a rate of $40 billion a month. >>> managers at mitsubishi motors's subsidiaries say things are getting back to normal. maruti suzuki's sales are on the rise nearly three months after a riot shut down production at its factory in northern india. the managers say the company sold nearly 94,000 cars in september, up almost 10% from the same month last year. it's also an improvement compared to august when the firm suffered a 40% decline in sales. operators of the company's man sur plant closed the
round is sponsored by td ameritrade. s m? >>> today ben bernanke our valiant fed chief reaffirmed his pledge to keep the interest rates down. let me give you the basic cramer english translation. ben's once again saying buy dividend stocks, high yields. because if you want income from your investments dividends are going to be the only game in town for years to come. bernanke is promising that the returns from bonds will be puny. same thing with cds. he can make that promise. you need to swap in the dividend stocks. that's why we'll introduce you to prologis. it's a global real estate interest trust. they specialize in distribution space for customers that do business in multiple countries. that's why some of the biggest customers, dhl, amazon, pepsi -- pepsico and fedex. think of prologis as a logistics reit, one that sports a yield, exactly the kind of dividend stock you want in this low interest rate environment. it's rallied since the beginning of the year, but lately it's pulled back three points. it could be giving you a good entry point here. first though, before making any dec
reserve board. this republican ben bernanke who preceded obama recognizes one very visible thing, the obstruction that's going on in congress renders the fiscal policy -- and you recognize that there's outright obstruction going on in congress that stops any fiscal policy, what are you going to do? >> what policy? >> it's the only tool left. >> i talk to republicans all the time. i'm a reporter, they're really thinking of this as a political issue. this is a stimulus pae f obama and obama and the a republicans should be embracing this. >> romney has said that he opposes this -- romney has also said that he will not reappoint ben bernanke. there's not a lot of sympathy for bernanke inside that campaign or the gop, that interests me a lot. i'm asking a difficult question, i don't think there's a direct -- i'm not saying that bernanke is deliberately doing qe-3, because probably it won't work in the next six weeks anyway. >> it hasn't worked up until now. >> the federal reserve is like the supreme court, it's now controlled by left wing democrats. >> here's what i think, this is buy
about you by ben bernanke, will serve as a bridge over fiscal cliff and not take us down. the federal stance will take higher paying dividend companies into gems, seeking income, we'll band in bonds of cash poor countries and buy cash rick countries with yields that well exceed treasuries and still own a lot of gold. there's not a nation on earth that doesn't want its currency lower. that reserve currency is gold. also not to toot my own horn too hard, but throughout this period i recognized primacy of some bigger stocks, intel, wells fargo, verizon come to mind or the recognition you must own, not trade, own apple until it's too expensive versus it's growth rate and it's not near there yet. you have now heard pretty much everything. you've heard the last of when i've done over the last 12 months, at least for this evening. while i can already see the youtube about how cramer himself admits he's always getting things wrong, i thought for posterity i should lead with something more positive about "mad money," the youtube clips you post or go on jim cramer economics, hey, knuckle head,
and former u.s. treasury consultants. welcome to the show. great to have you here. ben bernanke speaking today -- >> very good to be here. >> thank you. gerri: the federal reserve chairman speaking today and said we are not in a recession. it is not likely we will be in recession. very optimistic. very upbeat. are you? >> no. i think we are probably losing momentum if we are not in a recession we are close to. the big problem is at the end of the year if we have not done something about the fiscal cliff we are going to be in recession very definitely. the rest of the world is slowing down as well. so certainly the momentum is not good. whether the growth number for the fourth quarter is a half a percent or three-quarters of% or zero it will feel pretty much the same. we will be close enough to recession to put some real pressure on the lame-duck congress to do something about that fiscal clef. gerri: motors recently in a poll, 60 percent of them said the u.s. is in a recession. at some point it becomes self reinforcing from the people who could take us out of this we don't want to spend
numbers come down even further. are these the numbers that forced ben bernanke, even though i don't think he is making the right move, is this what he felt compelled to do all he did in qe-3? >> we have seen this. third-quarter gdp number since 2008. we are churning through what happened inventory in the economy in 2008. we will live through the same cycle in 2012. we are really looking at the data that ben bernanke's right, it looks like we are looking into another recession here, even though the stock market says the all-time highs are bumping up levels where we would not be seeing additional stimulus. david: i hear a lot of people expressing their october surprises. we have had some of this before, 1987, is anybody down there expecting those? >> yes, they are. keep in mind, something happens that is profoundly different. we have seen a meaningful location out of consumer staples and financials end technology. that is eerie. people are really starting to get data. is this the beginning of the end of an october debacle or something new? that is the argument that is going on on the floor
that are doing their best to generate good data and why does this overused cliche matter so much? ben bernanke said he's going to continue to buy bonds to keep interest rates down, so that this purchasing manager's number won't be an aberration. when you examine the fundamental stocks, you are playing what's known as the micro. when you take into account the big data numbers like the purchasing manager's index, you're making a macro analysis. again though like the idea of fighting the fed this micro/macro dichotomy might mean nothing to you unless you took ec 101. let's put it in terms that everybody can understand. anyone who's been to a museum or taken an art class knows that for years artists tried to paint pictures as if they were perfectly -- let's say they tried to capture the exact look. like a kodak camera. okay? that's called realism as the painters are indeed realistic. but as art progressed in the late 19th and early 20th century, you tend to get more -- let's say impressionist, less realist and then expressionists as the artists strugged to get beyond the four walls of the canvas,

component of cpi? so, i could be ben bernanke's speech writer because he says the same thing every time he goes in front of the senate is we don't see any particular problem with inflation. really, we don't corn prices just nearly double in three months. so, how is it there is no inflation? >> reporter: do you get any sense that the ethanol mandate is going to change under either administration under obama or if romney would get elected? >> well is sure seems like the word ethanol has turned into a pejorative and it's not exactly the most positive topic. i just don't know that turning food into gasoline is necessarily what we want to be doing in the long term. >> reporter: and it affects this market? >> you bet it does. as corn prices go up cattle prices go up. simple as that. that's an input cost to feeding cattle is corn, so you've got to take cattle prices higher to offset that. >> reporter: thanks very much. >> you bet. >> tom: a quiet ending to the third quarter for stocks the major indices falling. the s&p 500 spent the entire session in negative territory. it made three failed attem

easing, ben bernanke making his case, our rich edson is standing by live with bernanke in indianapolis. >> and we are blowing the lid off what a producer here is calling a pork-alypse. why last week's warning of a global bacon shortage is now being called hogwash. tracy: it was scary at the moment. now let's go to nicole petallides at the new york stock exchange. we have quite a rally. nicole: so far so good. the bulls out on wall street say hey i will take it. the dow jones industrials are up more than 1%. we have seen all the dow components 29 of the 30 in the green with the exception of microsoft. cisco hovering around the unchanged line. for the most part all have up arrows. less worries about europe, certainly one thing we have noticed. also the ism number coming in and that showed expansion rather than three months of contraction for u.s. manufacturing. so that was good news there. let's take a look here at goldman sachs. when you are looking at goldman sachs, it is interesting because in barron's over the weekend, we call this one the barron's bounce; right? well, barron's sayin
you're going to see it pick up especially thanks to ben bernanke and 50-year lows on interest rates, hole ri cow. and a lot of those home-building stocks, my god, they're up 900, 200% -- 100, 200%. david: i've got to argue with you on one point, do you really think a two-tenths of a percent drop is going to get people to buy houses? cheryl: i actually think that you are going to see, finally, those numbers begin to take hold as far as sales go because consumer confidence is beginning to rebound, and we all know that a piece of housing wealth in your portfolio if you're a homeowner -- david: okay. these, by the way, just as i'm about to refer to them, ernie's going to put it back up on the screen. there are the home builders, and hovnanian, i think it was over 6%, so it's coming off its lows. but, again, as cheryl rightly points out, the highs -- these stocks have just been zooming ahead. we had uri hovnanian a month ago, and he was ecstatic. thank you very much, cheryl, i'll try to do you justice. let's switch to nicole petallides now and turn to oil which is seeing another down day
: by the way, governor, ben bernanke was talking about it yesterday. recession, whether we're in one or not. he of course said no. other people, economist david malpass and others say we may actually be in recession right now. did you ask that of your executives or do they have a consensus whether we're in one or going towards one? >> we didn't ask it that way. we ask every quarter what do they think gdp will be. this is the last time we ask for 2012. they dropped from 2.1 to 1.9 growth. you saw official revision in the last quarter all the way down to 1.3. what is bothering families, family incomes dropped four consecutive years. 8% over the last four years. home values are still suffering in so many areas around the country. i think for families they know somebody in the family. the extended family is laid off unemployed looking for work. they don't feel so good about their own circumstances. their confidence is shaken but more importantly the company that might hire them is wondering what are the rules? can i go out and hire? can i invest. we have lot of work to do. we would like to increase
. my point here, carl, is don't fight ben bernanke. if he came out and said, ladies and gentlemen, me and mr. drogy and i want people to buy stewed prunes, everybody should listen carefully. you may think it's wrong, but i sure would not go out and short stewed prunes on that idea. that's the problem that a lot of people are having. a lot of people are underperforming the market because their ideologies are getting in the way. >> thank you. let's get another capital markets op-ed. gary, talk a little politics. >> we'll get to that in a second. i steered clear of politics for quite some time. but let me talk about a cool breeze about what's happened. think back to mid-august. we did that informal survey. we asked people what would be the most important factor for the equity markets in 2012. 65% said it was going to be the election, if you remember. it has not been the case since mid-august. and as e we said all along, it's been about central banks. i do think that's going to change. i think politics will once again become something that has an impact on the equity markets. that it will
opposite of a mandate to take away the punch bowl once the party gets started. now ben bernanke is going to keep it flowing for as long as it takes. we could be for three days. plus, one more unthinkable, a slowing chinese economy. the great engine of growth that has supported global commerce for years. >> all aboard! >> including the darkest days of the great recession. and what's happened? the stock market never quit. never stopped climbing, it has a remarkable run with almost every sector leading the charge at one time or another, the great rotation. and before i go into the by remistations for the evening. i told you not to waver, to stay the course, the slowdown against china, and the growth that is the united states. the diverse portfolio of high-quality stocks, income producers, and growth stocks with solid dividend boosts. and of course, some gold. these have all been the correct calls to make. i've stuck with it because i believe the europeans are not suicidal. so far, so good on that front. i believe the chinese economy will simply come back by the virtue of the fact there is s
ben bernanke is pushing for higher inflation. is his real inflation target not 2%, but like 4%, 5%? if he could wave a magic wand, would he do that? >> they could have a secret vote. it would be in excess of three, for sure at least in the near term. the fed told us they would do whatever it takes to get what they want. they haven't exactly told us what they do or what they want. >> all right. what they want is a lower unemployment rate, isn't that fair? >> right. but they have lower unemployment in the price stability. what's going to happen is you're going to get fomc participants litigating the issue in public. like charlie plaszer yesterday talking about how policy won't be effective and charlie evans today talking about -- >> but they always do that. bernanke, that board is all obama appointees. and it's the liberal left keynesian board. it's an inflationist board. you as great economist and forecaster, right now the inflation numbers, they don't look scary at all. cpi, so forth, commodity prices, none of that stuff is booming. what do you think is the earliest time? a year f
of the gains after federal reserve chairman ben bernanke defended the central bank's latest bond buying stimulus program. is that a red flag that this fed-fueled rally is in trouble? top strategists are weigh in tonight. take a look at how we're finishing the day on wall street. as you can see, things settled out, dow jones industrial average held on to a double-digit move, although well off of that 161-point rally. the nasdaq went negative, although it, too, came back off of the worst levels finishing flat on the session. that had everything to do with apple. apple stock today down bringing the rest of the market down with it. it is in so many portfolios. s&p 500 up. it's the last day of the quarter of the year. we closed off the highs of the day. not a bad way to kick off the fourth quarter. is today's performance a good indicator of what's ahead? should investors be bracing for a rocky road going into year end? i bring in right now wells fargo adviser, chase investment council, peter, cnbc.com's jeff cox, our own rick santelli. good to see you all. thank you so much for joining us. w
chairman ben bernanke defended a controversy program to buy up $40 billion in mortgage debt every month until employment improves. the slowing economic recovery forced the feds to resort to such unusual measures after lowering interest rates to next to nothing failed to turn things around. critics of the plan say it could lead to inflation in the future. an amtrak train has derailed in central california after officials say a big rig truck slammed right into it just south of fresno. as many as 40 people reported hurt in the crash. when several cars jumped the tracks. trace gallagher in our west coast news hub now. trace, exactly how did this happen. >> well, the train was heading south from oakland to bakersfield. it crashed in a town called hanford which is 30 miles outside fresno it appears that a truck carrying a cotton by product actually blue through the signal and crashed into the train. it looks like three of the five railcars are off the track. you can see two of them there at a 45-degree angle. the people inside were tossed about. 169 on board. 40 injured. at last check 17 were
